Bathroom Closet Organization Tips

Just as any closet in your home can become cluttered up quickly your bathroom closets can certainly do the same. My organizing mantra is to always take stock on what you have and purge any items you no longer need. That goes for the bathroom too! You'd be surprised on what you can find in your linen closets that you can rid yourself of. Old blankets and sheets that could be donated. Expired medications and beauty products. Even older hair brushes. Take some time to sort through what can stay and what can go to create a bathroom closet that is functional and organized!

Once you have decided the keepers here are some tips on keeping it organized so that the sorting chore is a chore you will only have to do once! 

  • Place all like items together in groups. Hair products, lotions, medicine, etc. Always be certain expired medications have hit the road, as well as an older make-up or hair products. Great article here on how to determine the shelf life of your beauty products. 
  • Place each category in bins and label. No more searching through a sea of items to find whats needed.
  • Be sure your bins are within reach on the shelf and items you need daily are within arms length. Anything you may not want easily accessible to your children should be stored higher. 
  • Re-fold linens to create more space and place sheet sets within pillowcases. This keeps like sets together and opens up room in the closet. Great tutorial here on towel folds!
  • Utilize baskets for larger items, or even to hold any of your children's bath time toys. Make a trip to the dollar store to find colorful and inexpensive ways to organize. 

This bin, stored in a child's bathroom, contains first aid items and medicine for the little ones. Have some fun with labels and encourage your children to place items back in their designated spots!
